Railbus

Mike's most recent project was the building of a railbus - a freelance version of the Galloping Goose. The Goose is now operational and has been sold to xxx and can be seen at Tauranga.

Electric railbus

Mike has also purchased two small electric (battery-powered) railbuses which can be driven by children (under supervision of course). Here are some photos of one of the railbuses in action at Seaview on Flickr.
